If you utter worthy, not worthless words, you will be my spokesman. Jeremiah 15:15
Father, I ask that you put your words in my mouth, my writing. Please place your Shoes of Peace on my feet. May I speak words of encouragement, hope, and truth. May my writing entertain and enlighten those living in the shadows of darkness.
The law is spiritual; I am unspiritual. If I do what I do not want to do, it is sin living in me. I have the desire to do what is good, but cannot carry it out. The evil I do not want to do, this I keep on doing. My mind is a slave to God’s law, but the members of my body make me a slave to the law of sin. Romans 7:16, 18, 19, 23, 6
Father forgive me for the sins committed by the members of my body. You know the desires of my heart, my soul. I cannot be the man I wish to become. Only you can change me. I am powerless to remove the curse that keeps me enslaved to sin. So I ask, I beg, place the righteousness of your Son Jesus within me. May He be the healing help I need to live righteously and with integrity.
